A modern and minimal apartment building, 231 Napier Street is designed by Edition Office for Milieu. Carefully designed with reference to the history of its site, the modern and minimal apartment building is comprised of eleven contemporary apartments, each expressing a sense of material honesty.

Located in the heart of Fitzroy and surrounded by culture, 231 Napier Street occupies a tranquil pocket of space, making it an escape from the bustle of city life. The modern and minimal apartment building is bordered by Gertrude, Smith and Brunswick Streets just north of the city.

The architectural detail of 231 Napier Street emerges from a close study of the built history of Fitzroy. “We studied the materiality of Fitzroy’s historic buildings, their relief patterns, the composition of windows and doors to the façade, and the rhythm of party walls that line the streetscape,” says Aaron Roberts, Director at Edition Office. The resulting modern and minimal apartment building strongly connects to its neighbouring context.

Internally, 231 Napier Street celebrates pared-back luxury. Full-height glazing enables the modern and minimal apartment building to borrow visual space from outside whilst bespoke joinery and an open plan layout maximises living space and encourages the circulation of fresh air through each home.
Reflecting a belief in refined simplicity and civic responsibility, shared by Milieu and Edition Office, 231 Napier Street stands as a modern and minimal apartment building that pays homage to its architectural context.
